In February 2012, PMC published the book Yenealem (“My World”) with real-life stories about violence against women.

The stories were written by veteran and young writers from Ethiopia who were selected to travel to different regions and collect people’s stories. The jury selected the ten stories they felt were the most powerful. This book contributed to the Whole Society Strategy supporting the 2010-2011 project to address violence against women.

Veteran and young writers were selected to write PMC’s book, Yenealem. They traveled to find real stories that help create social change around violence against women.

Making a Difference

As part of Whole Society Strategies for important health and social messages, PMC has published a total of 10 books in Ethiopia and one book about the effectiveness of using books for social change. All of these books have been distributed to the libraries of government agencies, UN organizations, professional associations, schools, and other relevant organizations.
